Advancing Anaerobic Digestion of Wastewater Solids and Food Waste for Energy and Resource Recovery: Science and Solutions-A Framework for the Practice of Co-Digestion
Wednesday October 25 and Thursday October 26, 2017

Alexandria, VA 22314
Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF), with support from the Water Research Foundation (WaterRF) and the Water Environment Federation (WEF), held a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded workshop that provided an overview of recent research findings on co-digestion of organic wastes (such as food waste) with wastewater solids. The invited participants discussed, contributed and identified best practices currently used by water resource recovery facilities from their experience with co-digestion.
This Workshop was designed to promote dialog between researchers, experts, and the community of practitioners of co-digestion. The recommendations and outcome of the Workshop will be used to develop a Framework of Practice that will be published by WE&RF and WaterRF and then integrated with the WEF community of practice publications for wastewater/resource recovery professionals.
